Hello all! My name is Elizabeth and I am a junior at Texas A&M University. I am pursuing a degree in Marketing with a minor in Psychology. I am very fortunate to get the opportunity to write for CollegeFashionista and share my love of fashion with everyone.
The fashion bug bit me at a young age. When I went shopping, my mother would ask, “Do these shoes match this pant? What is the best way to dress up this look? Should we cinch it at the waist or no?”…and I was only eight-years-old at the time. So you could say that I have been my mother’s personal stylist for almost 13 years now. The passion only continued. Everyday I would rifle through our mail in search of the next issue of InStyle, Lucky or Vogue to continue the quest for the next big trend or the latest runway looks. It has now also developed into an online shopping addiction that I am not ashamed of having. I can safely say that fashion has been the only consistent infatuation I’ve had in my life.
Now that I am older and living on my own, I have become obsessed with coffee table books. My topic of choice for a great coffee table book: fashion, obviously. These books are full of great pictures, anecdotes and tips from those who have paved the (run)way for women’s fashion. Through reading books and magazines and making my own mistakes, my go-to shopping mantra has become: splurge on the classics and update your wardrobe with affordable trendy pieces. I say this because if something is classic, you will wear it all the time and through many seasons, so why not make it a luxury piece that will withstand the wear? Incorporate those less expensive trends into your wardrobe each season to make your look up-to-date and fresh. I try not to splurge on super trendy clothing because chances are, it will only last you a few seasons before you are ready to ditch it for the next big thing.
I am very excited about showing y’all what the streets of Aggieland have to offer this semester!
